Alcohol and Drug Rehab: Idaho Treatment Centers
Once you realize that you are addicted to drugs or alcohol, it is time to seek professional help. The best drug rehab Idaho can offer you will be the program that best suits your individual needs. There is no single approach to addiction recovery that works for everyone. For example, individuals addicted to opioid drugs often have the best results with drug treatment programs that offer medication-assisted treatment (MAT). MAT is an integrated program that combines counseling, therapy, and medication like methadone or buprenorphine to manage cravings and prevent relapse.
The fact that different patients need different approaches can even be applied to patients within the same family. Consider the example of two siblings with alcohol use disorder. While one might benefit from an outpatient program without medical care, the other may require an inpatient program with medical treatment. A more severe alcohol addiction would require detoxing at a medical facility that will supervise the withdrawal process in case of delirium tremens. This is a withdrawal syndrome that can cause seizures and even death in extreme cases.
Programs also differ in duration, ranging from two weeks to several months or longer. Your choice will be based on getting enough treatment for your healing process without staying away from the world longer than is healthy for you. If you have anxiety about returning to “real life” post-treatment, there are many ways to help ease the transition. For example, you could go from a live-in program—i.e., inpatient or residential—to partial hospitalization, outpatient, or intensive outpatient program, so that your treatment experience does not end too soon. If you or your treatment advisors feel that you aren’t ready to live on your own quite yet, you may want to move into a sober living house before moving home. A sober living facility will have residents who all contribute to housing chores, attend treatment, and follow the rules of no alcohol or drugs.
